Shining Some Light On Photography With A LUMIPro Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room her heels clicking across the floor as she makes her way to the desk. With a smile and a twinkle in her eye, she has a seat. Shortly after several people carrying photographs follow behind her. Well, they put pictures on the wall she turned her attention to you. ***

I hope all of you have been enjoying your summer. I was perusing the amazing work on the LUMIPro Flickr Group, and I decided it was time to share some more with you. So without further ado here we go... 









See what I mean? How could I not share such amazing work, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. Congratulations to each of you!

If you are not yet a LUMIPro user and you would like to see what amazing work you might be able to create there are a few ways you can check us out.

Try a fully functioning demo out LUMIPro's World Headquarters.

You can also find LUMIPro on Second Life's Marketplace.

Until next time... Happy Shooting!

Take A Look At What LUMIPro Can Do For You!

*** She opens the door, and with a smile, she ushers you in the gallery. ***

Feel free to take a look around while we chat. I know that many of you have been trying to decide whether LUMIPro is right for you. I thought I would see what I could do to help by sharing some information with you.

What is LUMIPro?

LUMIPro is a professional grade lighting tool and yet easy to start using the day you buy it. 
•    Fine control of lighting and shadows
•    Ability to pose yourself and/or all your models and groups as large as 10
•    Ability to save your scene lighting, camera, pose, and eye position and restore it on another day, even with different models
•    Shoot anywhere without rez even on no-script sims.  Great for product designers and bloggers
•    Hold 100s of your own purchased or created animation or use over 180 animations and exclusive mocaps from some of the grid’s best designers
•    Updates are always FREE for life


I have seen so much beauty created with LUMIPro since I bought in December of 2013. I am always in awe of the work artists create, but instead of hearing from me, let me share some reviews with you...

Awesome!

After you buy, join the group when invited (it may take a little while). The photos members post daily just blow me away, and I am a professional photographer in RL. 5 stars are not enough!


Priceless!!!

LumiPro make taking picture so much easier. 
I love it , I love it , I love it.

Awesome Photo Lighting System!!
Posted July 17, 2017 by CarlWeed 5 stars
LUMIPro is by far, the best lighting system in SL for photography that I have found. I have several other photo studio systems but none have the capabilities that LUMIPro has for lighting control with color, intensity, positioning, casting shadows, etc. for your photo shoots. The biggest selling feature to me is having the ability to take your lighting anywhere in SL and use it, including the no-rez areas of SL. I wanted to get out of my portrait studio but proper lighting was a problem. Now I have great lighting anywhere I shoot in SL! Other bonuses of the system are being able to control multiple models from the HUD without having to instruct them to move or change positions or anything. The system has many great built in poses (not the cheap ones either) that will get you going in no time with very professional looking photos. The eye control system is also another great tool to assist in getting those eyes just right for your shot.
If you are serious about capturing great professional photos in SL, this photo lighting system is well worth the investment. It will be the last one you will ever buy I think. The one tip I would give anyone who buys this system and does not have previous experience with earlier versions of LUMIPro is... take maybe 30 minutes or so of your time and watch all of the great video tutorials on their website. They run through many of the features, as there are many, and they will give you a much better understanding of what all you can do with this system without a lot of reading. I had never used LUMIPro before and this is what I did after I purchased it. Within no time, I was off and shooting some great photos with this system.
My hats off to the creator and developer of this system. Nice job!!

To take a peek at more reviews feel free to check us out on the marketplace. If you are interested you can also try a fully functioning demo at our in world headquarters. I hope you will like what you see! If you have any questions or need any assistance don't hesitate to contact me, Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet (SamoanHoneyPot Resident). Until next time... Happy Shopping and of course Happy Shooting!

What A Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room her wedge sandals sliding across the floor as her hips sway. Looking over her shoulder she motions for someone to follow, and nine men carrying canvases come in behind her. As she sits at the desk they begin to place the canvases on the wall. ***

Hello, everyone, it is been far too long since we all chatted. I have been looking over the Flickr this evening; I must say, you guys are doing some amazing work. I am looking forward to sharing some of it with you. So let's get started...

Spotlight Time!

*** She walks into the room carrying a beach ball in one hand and a satchel in the other. Putting the beach ball down, she pulls out several photos and begins hanging them, before turning to speak with you. ***

I do hope that everyone's enjoying their summer. As you can see my helpers are not here today. At least I don't have to worry about their opinions on the artwork I chose. It is been far too long so I thought it was time for a LUMIPro spotlight. Let's do it!








I just love each of these photos. Congratulations everyone! I can't wait to see you guys again. Until next time... Happy Shooting!

A Delicious Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room wearing a zebra print swimsuit, her hips sway, and you hear her bare feet slide across the tile floor. She sits at the desk and slides her long red hair behind her ear before ushering people, carrying photo frames, into the room. She looks up with a playful smile. ***

Hello everybody! I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer, and that you all are taking lots of pictures! With all of the deliciousness being added to the Flickr group I thought it was time to share some of them with you...

Well until next time... I am off to the beach. Happy Shooting!

2017 HUD Version 2 Update Released Today!

Samantha and I are happy to announce an update to the 2017 HUD.  This update was about refining a few features and fixing a few bugs.

To update to the new HUD just wear your LUMIPro 2017 (not the beta). If you have issues updating try reseting your scripts. 

To transfer your animations and presets just use the backup/restore server and copy all your animations and scenes from the old HUD to the backup server then wear the new HUD and select restore.    Here is a video describing how to use the backup/restore server (the video is slightly older and I've changed the look and feel of the server, but it works the same).

I want to give a special thanks to the best testers. Can't do my job without you.  A special call out to Graeme Little for offering several bug sightings!

Change list (in no particular order)


  • options->rez backup server fixed
  • Saving a scene removes the old scene name
  • Clicking a sitball no longer resets location
  • Cycling the power button no longer shows the balls and preserves alpha
  • Large pose file names now shows better on the display menus
  • Pixel cleanup on the sliders
  • Deleting a single pose no longer resets to the top of the list
  • Scene checks animation exists and issues pop-up if not vs throwing a script error
  • Sit ball joystick in/out no longer moves the projector
  • Projector menu now added to final LCD location
  • Wearing the backup server no longer displays yellow text on a teleport
  • Cataloging will stop if close to memory full
  • Pressing the animation stop button doesn’t request an animation unless there are outstanding poses
  • Attempted to reduce texture sizes to prevent slow performance message (still there sadly)
  • After filing all 10 models the HUD gracefully is full
  • Scene restore of a camera only position no longer does an eye animation request to the model.
  • Delete All now works with pose filters (example: you can now delete all poses with the word “SIT” in them.
  • Faster post catalog reset with a large number of animations
  • New feature:  You can transfer a scene to a friend with a LUMIPro
  • Now you can type “YES!” to deleting an animation and you won’t be asked each time
  • The joystick now selects projector when selecting the black ball on the color menu (convenience)
  • help notecard updated
  • change server updates to the new release (won’t work on beta, ignore the update message)
